Advent Vega review

Update: Advent has been in touch to tell us issues outputting sound through HDMI is down to our Sony TV. Apparently, it’s a well-known issue, with discussions all over the web. We can’t test it at the moment, since we only have Sony TVs to hand, but have you replicated it at home? Give us a shout in the comments section.

Oh, Advent Vega. It’s been a torrid love affair. While the Samsung Galaxy Tab snubbed us with its high asking price, here you were, promising scarily similar performance and specs, at less than half the cost. You’ve been playing hard to get on online stores, and come out of nowhere, winding up as one of the most anticipated gadgets of 2010 in the UK.

Now though, we’ve had a chance to test the slate out thoroughly, and cut through all the hype. Has it been worth the wait? Read our full Advent Vega review to find out.

Gran Turismo 5 review

Gran Turismo 5. Just say it folks. Savour those words. It’s actually here. With a development period of more than half a decade, Gran Turismo 5 was perilously close to becoming video gaming’s equivalent of Guns and Roses’ Chinese Democracy in the “painful delay” stakes. After much anticipation and hype, the latest installment in Polyphony Digital’s “Real Racing Simulator” series has finally hit the PS3, but does it have what it takes to shake off the competition? Read our Gran Turismo 5 review to find out.

Boxee Box review

The Boxee Box first snared our interest at CES in January. Almost a year has passed since then, and yet it’s held our fickle affections remarkably well. That’s partly down to its odd design, but mostly due to the chipper folks at Boxee itself.

Begun as a media centre-style app for desktop PCs and Macs, Boxee gained notoriety as an Apple TV hack, finally making Apple’s set top companion able to play files beyond the reach of iTunes. Now, it’s at home inside a box of its own, how does it measure up? Read our full Boxee Box review and we’ll spill the beans.

Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood review

Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood has cause a lot of consternation and confusion in the months since it was first announced. Is it a sequel or not? Would a follow up just a year after Assassin’s Creed 2 mean it was rushed, buggy and uninspired? We’re still not sure about the former, and frankly, we don’t think Ubisoft is either. But we can allay all fears about the latter: this, friends, is game of the year. Read on to find out why in our Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood review.
